Meet Shari Placko

 

HI!   My name is Shari Placko.  I am a wife, mother, 3rd grade teacher, and now, a Young Living Essential Oils Independent Distributor!  

In the summer of 2015, I was diagnosed with an autoimmune condition.  I was placed on a lot of medications (that did little to help) and was taking 12 (yes, you read that correctly...12!) ibuprofen a day.  Frustrated by my daily aches and pains, I began to look into the world of essential oils.   I began my oily journey in September 2015.  All I can say is that I now feel fabulous!   I have removed many toxins from my home.  I use my essential oils in all the ways recommended.  I use them aromatically in my diffuser, I ingest them either in capsules I make with the Vitality oils, or I add them into my water.  Finally, I use them topically for face serums and other lotions and creams I make!  When I talk to people, I find myself saying, "There's an oil for that!"

I am now a Silver Leader!!   It was never in my plan to share about oils, however, when my friends, family, and colleagues saw such a difference in my overall health and wellness, I couldn't help but share!    Please reach out to me if you have any questions! I would love to help you change your life.....one drop at a time!

Why is it important to clean with natural ingredients?

Why is it important to clean with natural ingredients?
Why is it important to clean with natural ingredients?
You’re at the grocery store and you see a cleaner on the cleaning aisle. It looks cute and makes promises of a germ-free environment. You assume it’s safe for use because it’s sold at the store. Most people assume cleaning products on the grocery store shelf have been tested and are safe for use, but that is simply not true!
Just because a commercial cleaner promises a germ-free environment doesn’t mean there aren’t hidden dangers and other risks associated with its use:
• Conventional cleaning products contain many endocrine-disrupting chemicals that can wreak havoc on your respiratory system, cellular health, thyroid, adrenal glands, and even mental clarity.
• Indoor air quality is five to seven times more toxic than outdoor air quality mainly due to conventional cleaners.
Scary facts:
• Children born to women who held cleaning jobs while pregnant have an elevated risk of birth defects, according to a 2010 study by the New York State Department of Health.
www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20029025
• Some ingredients found in cleaners may be linked to cancer, reproductive and developmental toxicity, allergies and irritation, burns and poisonings. 
o -www.ewg.org/guides/cleaners/content/cleaners_and_health
• According to the U.S. EPA, cleaning products contribute to concentrations of many common pollutants that are two to five times higher inside homes than outside.
https://www.epa.gov/…/volatile-organic-compounds-impact-ind…
• Studies show that many toxicants invade our bodies. They have been found in blood, urine and breast milk, as well as in the umbilical cord blood of newborns.
www.cdc.gov/exposurereport/
www.ewg.org/re…/minority-cord-blood-report/executive-summary
• Nurses who used disinfectants to clean surfaces at least once a week had a 24 percent to 32 percent increased risk of developing lung disease. 
https://www.newsweek.com/cleaning-products-increase-risk-ch…
https://www.eurekalert.org/pub_re…/2017-09/elf-nru090817.php
• Regular use of cleaning sprays can have as much of an impact on health as smoking a pack of cigarettes a day, according to this study
https://www.newsweek.com/impact-cleaning-products-lung-heal…
http://www.thoracic.org/…/…/women-cleaners-lung-function.pdf
Because of the Toxic Substance Control Act, companies did not have to clear even a basic safety review before using a chemical in a consumer product. Instead of requiring chemical manufacturers to demonstrate that their products were safe before they went into use, the law required the government to prove that a substance caused harm in order to control or replace a dangerous chemical. The law has been slightly updated for newly created chemicals, but the 80,000+ chemicals created in the last century are still being used in the marketplace. Yikes.
